How important is gain reduction meter on comp to you?
Maybe a dumb question but it seems that is all I post:
Is a gain reduction meter on a compressor important only to guys like me (who apparently, if you read comments from people here) have poor/damaged hearing? Because I am convinced my next comp must have one and it is limiting my purchase options, particularly when trying to avoid a large rack unit. I think it would also be nice to see on a meter when it is helping "sustain".
Thoughts? Discussed to death somewhere already?
Thanks for reading.
